£35,772 - £39,389 per annum
32 days annual leave
(+ 45p a mile travel and an excellent pension scheme)
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, flexible and personable Principal Social Worker. This is a specialist lead practice role and its remit includes the supervision and mentoring/training of staff and tasks related to quality assurance and performance management.
The FCC don’t believe in providing our Social Workers with heavy caseloads. Instead, we aim to provide our Social Workers with ample capacity to provide a thorough, personal and meaningful service to all of our foster families.
The role will involve travel within the South Wales area (and at times across other regions of Wales). Additionally, you will be required to answer emergency calls outside of office hours.
Applicants must have experience in the completion of good quality, evidence based assessments and hold a Diploma or BA in Social Work. Prior fostering experience is essential.
The successful applicant will join a supportive team with an established carer group and experienced social workers. We are a non-profit organisation, putting the needs of our children and carers first and look to appoint a Social Worker who is as passionate about this as we are.
Application Closing Date: Monday February 26th 2018
